Adrien “The Problem” Broner (33-3, 24 KO’s) was originally scheduled to fight Omar Figueroa on April 21st at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn New York, but he will now have a different opponent.  Omar Figueroa suffered a shoulder injury in training camp, and has officially pulled out of the fight.  He will be replaced by Jessie Vargas (28-2, 10 KO’s).  The fight will be brought to you by Premier Boxing Champions, and will be live on ShowTime at 9pm ET.  The fight will also be set for a 144 pound catch weight.  When asked about the fight, Broner had this to say:  “I’m excited that this is an even bigger fight then Figueroa.”

Lets not forget about the spectacular undercard for this fight as well.  Gervonta Davis (19-0, 18 KO’s) will make his ring return as he takes on Jesus Cuellar (28-2, 21 KO’s) for the vacant WBAsuper Junior Lightweight title.  Davis seemed more concerned with showing off for the crowd then actually fighting in his last fight, but never the less, he still got the KO victory against Francisco Fonseca.  Also on the card, Jermall Charlo (26-0, 20 KO’s) will be facing rising star Hugo Centeno JR (26-1, 14 KO’s) for the vacant WBC interim Middleweight title.  Should be a great night of boxing at the Barclays Center on April 21st 2018.

Last night, Showtime Championship Boxing was a thriller, as Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KO’s) somehow was able to defeat Luis Ortiz (28-1, 24 KO’s), in what was surely the toughest fight of his entire career.  Jose Uzcategui (27-2, 23 KO’s) also defeated Andre Dirrell (26-3, 16 KO’s) in their rematch of their highly controversial first fight.  Uzcategui was winning their first fight on all 3 scorecards before he got questionably disqualified, and he picked up right where he left off.  He was the sharper fighter in this one, and it showed a lot.  Dirrell did not look prepared at all, and kind of looked like a washed up fighter, and a former shell of himself.  the first 3 rounds were competitive, and then it was all down hill for Dirrell.  By the 5th round, Dirrell became Uzcategui’s punching bag, and it did not look like the fight would go the distance.  Uzcategui was using every punch in the book, and hitting Dirrell at will.  Dirrell would not come out of the corner for the 9th round, and Uzcategui gets the TKO victory.

The main event was a banger, and surprisingly very reminiscent to the Anthony Joshua VS Wladimir Klitschko fight.  A very back and forth affair.  Luis Ortiz looked strong in the beginning, winning each of the first 4 rounds.  Ortiz was out boxing Wilder in those rounds, as Wilder looked dumb founded about how to approach him.  Ortiz’s smart jab was finding a home on Wilder’s face, which everyone thought would be the other way around.  Wilder has the best and longest babe of any current Heavyweight, and through the first 4 rounds, he simply could not land it.  Luis Ortiz display superb defense due to his amateur pedigree, and Wilder seemed baffled.

Things would drastically change in the 5th round however.  After winning most of the 5th round, Ortiz got nailed with a Wilder right hand that stumbled him, and the next punch would put him down.  Ortiz was saved by the bell however, as the knock down came with only 10 seconds left in the fifth.  Ortiz would recover in the 6th round, but Wilder would land a few more right hands throughout the round.  They would have a few more exchanges in a very interesting 6th round that Wilder squeezed out and won.

The mayhem would really start at the end of the 7th round.  Ortiz landed a clean monster left hook right on Wilder’s jaw which put him on dream street.  Ortiz landed a few more punches, including a huge left hand which looked like it would put Wilder down.  Wilder was completely out of it, but some how made it out of the 7th.  Wilder would come out in the 8th round still on dream street, and Ortiz was back on the attack trying to finish the fight.  Wilder would get lucky and make it through the 8th, as it seemed that Ortiz punched himself out a bit in the second half of the round.

The 9th round was pretty uneventful, as Ortiz seemed to has tired a lot, and Wilder was still recovering from that devastating 7th round, in which he almost lost the fight.  That would all change in the 10th however.  Wilder landed a huge right hand half way through the round, which was one of the loudest punches I have ever heard, and it wobbled Ortiz.  Ortiz was shoved down and it was ruled a slip, but he was clearly hurt.  Wilder came out of the corner throwing combinations, and nailed Ortiz with another right that put him down again.  Ortiz would barely beat the count, but continue on.  Wilder, knowing he had his man hurt, came out landing 2 clean right hands, and a huge right uppercut, which would put Ortiz down for good.  Deontay Wilder survives in dramatic fashion, and remains the unedited WBC World Heavyweight champion.

Image result for garcia vs riosThis past Saturday night February 17th 2018, was a huge night for boxing.  We got a chance to look at a future superstar in boxing as David Benavidez (20-0, 17 KO’s) put a beat down on Ronald Gavril (18-3, 14 KO’s) in their long awaited rematch.  We also saw a star re-establish himself in the Welterweight division after suffering his first professional loss, as Danny Garcia (34-1, 20 KO’s) KO’d Brandon Rios (34-4-1, 25 KO’s) in the 9th round of their WBC Welterweight title eliminator.  The night was opened however by a matchup of two other rising stars, both looking to take that next step in their careers, as Yordenis Ugas (21-3, 10 KO’s) defeated Ray Robinson (24-2, 12 KO’s) via 7th round TKO.

The fight was an interesting one at the beginning, but it later became apparent that Ugas was the more skilled fighter.  He dropped Robinson on a flash knockdown in the second round, but Robinson was not hurt, as it appeared that he went down due to their feet being tangled up.  Robinson, perhaps feeling a sense of urgency after the knockdown, would land some nice shots in the 4th and 5th rounds, but they seemed to have no effect on Ugas.  Ugas however, nailed Robinson with a huge right hand in the 7th round.  Robinson would beat the count, but was clearly on dream street.  Gas then came with a flurry of punches, and the referee stopped the fight.

The co-featured bout of the evening was also an interesting one, even though it was very one sided.  In their first fight, Benavidez and Garvil fought to a very narrow split decision, a fight that Benavidez barley won.  Guess he wasn’t lying when he said he had the flu in their first meeting, because he beat Gavril down in this contest.  Benavidez found a home early for his right and left uppercuts, splitting the guard of Gavril on a regular basis.  In the 4th round, Benavidez caught Gavril with a huge uppercut, which sent Gavril crashing into the ropes.  Gavel was lucky because it would have been a knockdown if the ropes hadn’t kept him up, and still could have been scored a knockdown if a judge saw it that way.  Benavidez continued to pepper Gavril with creative nominations throughout the rest of the fight.  Gavril came alive a bit in the 10-12 rounds and actually had a really good 11th, but it was far from enough.  The final scores were 120-108/120-108/119-109.  One judge gave the 11th to Gavril, which was also the only round I gave him.  Benavidez remains undefeated, and the WBC Super Middleweight champion.

The main event was a banger as expected, as Danny Garcia flattened Brandon Rios in the 9th round with an emphatic 1 punch TKO victory.  Rios looked slow in the first 2 rounds after the opening bell, and Danny Garcia, the historically slow starter, looked better then usual.  Rios would find a rhythm in the 3rd round however, and started throwing a lot more punches.  Garcia, who is usually a left hook artist, started nailing Rios with his right hand after the 4th round, and would continue to do so for the rest of the fight.  Rios looked good in rounds 6-8, maybe even taking a couple of them, but that would all come to an end in the 9th round.  Rios got a bit lazy with his jab and didn’t bring his left back quick or high enough, and out of no where, Garcia landed a master right cross that send Rios’ head flying backward.  Rios was dropped and clearly on another planet, and when he got up, he was very wobbly.  The referee was forced to stop the fight, as Rios was unable to walk straight.  At the time of the stoppage, Garcia was ahead on all 3 scorecards.
